The Event Horizon Imperial Stout is an incredibly rich and luxurious beer brewed with ten malts, local honey, and four American hop varietals before and extended aging in oak bourbon barrels. The result is a beer with many layers of complexity. As the name implies, with one sip you will be unable to turn back. This 2010 special release will age well for years to come, or enjoy now in good company. Cheers!

Thanks to John for sharing! 2013 release. Very great roasted vanilla in the nose. The beer starts sweet, smooth, probably too sweet, nice roasted, fresh, slightly bitter. The mainpart is quite sweet, roasted, molasses. Intense honey, wood. Smooth vanilla-burbon-aroma, very fresh, intense, sweetish, thick.
Great, but probably a bit too sweet! 12/12/12/12

Thanks John!! Pours a super dark brown/black with a rich tan head. The smell is bourbon, molasses, wood. The taste is similar to the nose with some rich fruit, roasted malt with a dry finish. Medium full body with nice carbonation.

Bottle courtesy of max. Pours a deep black with dark brown lacing. Aroma is rich raisin and dark chocolate roast. Mouthfeel is rich and full with notes of dark chocolate, espresso with five packets of sugar, earthy rooty roast and light maple. Great imperial stout.

22oz bottle, tasted at GreatMoloko’s place.. Black wax. 2013 vintage. Black color. Thin darker brown head. Dots of lace. Nice chocolate, coffee, some honey in the nose. Medium-plus body. Smooth, kind of crisp lighter carbonation. Light chewiness. Some light tart tannic... Moderate sweet. Alright stuff, for me.

shared a 2012 bomber with two friends. poured viscous black with a mocha coloured head. caramel, milk chocolate, oak, roasted malts, sweet bourbon, molasses, toffee, vanilla, oak, sweet coffee, incredible aroma, took me half an hour to notice it’’s "only" 8.5%! could use a bit more kick to the taste and it was a incredible beer! but still. what a lovely brew and so well combined with the bourbon barrels
